When Fascism Came to America by YNot1989 When Fascism Came to America by YNot1989
2010: California passes Prop 19, the Justice Department sues the state.

2011: Attacks by the Mexican Drug Cartels on American border towns become increasingly more violent and more frequent.

October 2011: The Tijuana Cartel ambushes 20 police officers during a drug bust in Los Angeles. The raid escalates as the LAPD sends in back up to surviving officers eventually resulting in the death of some 377 civilians and over 100 police officers.

2012: Riding on a sudden wave of support, and capitalizing on the Los Angeles Massacre, Sarah Palin and the Tea Party take control of the Presidency and Congress in the
elections.

-------

This is the first in a series I am doing entitled "Wrapped in the Flag and Carrying a Cross." I am exploring the idea of what a fascist regime would look like in the United States and how it might come to power.

I am not advocating for such a regime, this is just a thought experiment.

If Hillary runs in 2016 (and she'd be an idiot not to) there isn't a republican alive who could beat her, and only a couple could even pose a challenge. Anyone else the democrats got would get creamed by Christie or Huntsman.

I hope she does. If the Republicans win, it's back to War and Recession for America.

. . . it will be led by phrases such as, "Hope", "Change", and will be wrapped in non-recess recess appointments and illegal Executive Orders . . .

I guess the one thing you could argue, in theory since I know next to nothing in regards to this, but since the United States doesn't have the Enabling Acts that allowed Hitler to engineer a disaster to suspend Weimar Germany's Constitution, you'd have to debate just how a President Palin does manage to effectively make the Presidential election pure ceremony. But, that's just the level of my ignorance on this subject.

The tea party is right wing, of course. But it only looks fascist because its on the right of the political spectrum, just like fascism. Just as democrats are left wing but not automatically communists, it takes a pretty big stretch to actually believe that the tea party in its current form is fascist. Its a new political movement. Let it run its course, but be prepared and ready if it does go berserk. Trust the american political system of checks and balances to prevent such a thing from happening. That is the point o the right to bear arms, to prevent dictatorial regimes from taking power. If they see hitler in the oval office, the same people in texas and montana that support the tea party would be the first people to take te dictator out. remember operation valkyrie. It failed, but the men who saw their mistake of electing hitler and the nazis laid the groundwork for the end of the third reich.
